Blue Iron is a motorcycle club for law enforcement officers in the Golden Triangle. The 12-member club is part of the international Blue Iron organization and are Texas’ Original Chapter. The group was formed for those who enjoy the freedom of riding.

They are a 501(c)3 that supports the community through charitable activities and events. This year’s main fundraiser was to provide Christmas gifts for the Life Skills class at Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School. The group raffled a fire pit to provide the funds to buy gifts and were so successful, that they could buy everything on the students’ wish list.

Staff and students at Little Cypress Elementary in Orange received an exciting gift recently from three organizations that have worked together to provide classroom libraries to the school, which was devastated by the flood from Hurricane Harvey.

Lifetouch, the leading provider of school and family photography, teamed up with the Texas Elementary Principal and Supervisors Association (TEPSA) and Scholastic Book Fairs to donate 1,090 new books to Little Cypress Elementary. The books will be used to help rebuild the school’s classroom libraries, which were destroyed by Hurricane Harvey last year.

Vidor Junior High PE teacher and coach Priscilla Healy is Vidor ISD’s December Employee of the Month. Healy was nominated by co-worker Robin Corley who says, “Priscilla Healy continues to uphold her Packard tradition of being a pillar in the community. She is active in the community, her church, and the local school district.” After Harvey, Mrs. Healy helped muck out homes of many in the community, including VJHS staff members. She continues to help her colleagues as they rebuild, and was instrumental in securing donations for staff to have hot meals at school when their kitchens were disfunctional at home. “She is a mentor and role model to the students at Vidor Junior High. She always encourages her students and athletes to pursue excellence. They are always willing and ready to give 100% to Coach Healy because they never want to let her down.” Students say she gives 100% they they want to give mothing less for her.
